Belfort on Silva’s performance: “The audience and Dana White has already spoken for me”



Speaking to Tatame Magazine about Silva’s fight with Maia, Belfort said: “Well, I don’t have to say much about it. The audience and Dana White has already spoken for me. This is the way I’m feeling about it now. We think just the same. This answer was given by Dana and everyone else.”

When asked how he would have reacted to “The Spider’s” shenanigans, Belfort said:

It would only have given me strength to go there and show what I do best.”

On the condition of his shoulder, Belfort said:

“Pretty good. I’m in the middle of a treatment, going to the UFC’s doctor that Lorenzo (Fertitta) arranged for me. He’s really liking it. I’ll go there on Tuesday and we will establish the date of my comeback, between August and October.”

“Doing leg preparation, a lot of running and physical preparation so that I don’t overload my shoulder. Now it the time to regain my shoulder’s moves, make it more stable. I can’t do much, but our cross training has been nice, preserving my weigh. It’s all going really, really well, never better. I’m motivated and exited.”

When asked whether a title fight was top of his list upon his return, Belfort said:

“I’m working in this direction. My goal is to fight for the belt. That is what I’m waiting for and is all settled. The shoulder did not made things easy last time, but that’s exactly the reason of my motivation.”

Give Anderson a Brazilian, and he won't fight to finish. I would rather see him fight Chael now.

Chael ain't got shit for Anderson. I hate to break it to you guys. I'm not an Andy fan, but I'm not going to think Chael takes it based on pure distaste for Anderson.

Let's get real here...

What a great match it would be with Machida and Anderson. two "elusive" fighters shadow boxing each other while waiting for something to counter punch.

Get gassed and run.

185 and 205 are supposed to be exciting fights not what the current Champs are heaping up. Explain to them again this is MMA not boxing.

Seriously?





Also if you think Overeem kicked his ass, wait til Andy gets his hands on him


at that time in his life I dont think its fair to measure his ability.

I'd prefer Chael got first crack at Anderson. He brings a different style and mentality to the fight that would bring the most out of Silva.

Put Chael in there soon, I don't want to wait to long. DW should push Silva at this point

If Belfort won't be ready until Sept-Oct then that gives time to give Sonnen a title shot in June/July and if Silva wins make him fight again in October(against Vitor).<br /><br />No rest for the wicked.

He might want to take a warm up fight first being that he's coming off what sounds to be a pretty bad injury.

Excited about the matchup nonetheless. It would be a great way to pay back fans to put it on free tv, plus they'd get huge ratings so even more advertiser $$$.

I can't see Dana in a big hurry to give Silva another match anytime soon.

Belfort would crack Anderson's skull.

No joke.
